Besides Gary Vitti who has a lifetime contract with the lakers and to me the best trainer in NBA history, who do you think will be part of Mike D Antoni coaching staff? I know Eddie Jordan is gone for sure. That was a mistake by Mike Brown hiring him. I think they should keep Chuck Person. He did a great job with Dwight on free throws and such. Bernie is a great person but unfortnately he knows he wont be having a job by Friday. Hopefully we can get Nate Mcmillen.

MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

Clifford should stay because he knows Dwight better than anyone else on this staff defensively. He knows how he likes to operate and where he likes to be. Person helps mostly on the defensive end, suggesting adjustments and schemes. Darvin Ham is the development coach. Bernie is a fan favorite. Eddie Jordan is gone. No point of having him here. D'antoni is going to bring in a defensive coordinator and his son will be joining the staff as well as an assistant.

He is alright in my book now, and I am removing him from the hall of terrible coaches.

I like Bernie a lot, he has a great attitude and seems like he can handle the personalities pretty well. Seems like a well-respected guy. I don't know if he will stay though. Darin Ham might stay, seems like Dwight likes him and that's a priority. I highly doubt Eddie will be there, I don't know why he's still there anyway. He should have been fired before Brown probably, the Princeton was his offense haha.

Bernie Bickerstaff: Got the team playing well, gave the bench a good amount of minutes to produce.

Steve Clifford: Knows Dwight, so that's good.

Chuck Persons and Darvin Ham: Good with the players getting them better.

It should be:

Nate McMillan
Dan D'Antoni
Chuck Person
Steve Clifford
Darvin Ham

Five assistants should be good for us. A lot of teams have five or six (Oklahoma City has five that I can think of off the top of my head, maybe six...Cheeks, Keefe, Bryant, Trakh, Kalamian).

Bernie is okay, but if it means moving him out of the way for McMillan, it has to be done.

I agree. I think Bernie will find another assistant job somewhere he can have more influence. Seems to be a pretty good guy. Hopefully, Nate picks up the phone and joins the staff.
